Disney clearly learned from their merchandising mistakes last year, not having enough items for their live-action “Star Wars” series, “The Mandalorian,” to keep up with demand. Usually one to learn from such things- this means we’re getting Mando Mondays to make up for it this October.
Announced yesterday by way of a youtube video, we see some of the items likely to be revealed in the coming weeks.
Watch the video here.
Disney and Lucasfilm today announced “Mando Mondays,” an all-new global consumer products, games, and publishing program kicking off on October 26, that will debut goods inspired by the show.
After fans experience the latest episode every Friday on Disney+, they can visit MandoMondays.com each Monday to see what new toys, collectibles, apparel, books, comics, digital content, and more will be unveiled. Mando Mondays will run for nine weeks, culminating on December 21.
“When The Mandalorian debuted last year on Disney+, the show became an instant phenomenon, with fans of all ages expressing excitement for products related to its iconic characters — particularly the Child,” said Kareem Daniel, president, Disney Consumer Products, Games and Publishing. “This fall, as the world continues to watch the narrative unfold, we will further bring this unique Star Wars story to life through a must-have selection of toys, books, comics, digital content, and more.”
To celebrate this announcement, select pre-orders for the first wave of Mando Mondays products will kick off today at 1 p.m. PT and 4 p.m. ET across top retailers globally, including shopDisney.com.
